Local Products Fairly Traded in Malmesbury
We recognise that local farm produce and other foods, craft goods and artworks bought directly by local outlets and sold in Malmesbury are also fairly traded. We have a monthly Farmers' Market with a fantastic range of local produce and the town is full of shops selling locally produced goods from small suppliers. You will be surprised at just how many local products are available. Why not have a go at seeing how many you can try? Local shops and suppliers will be only too pleased to help you.
